Judge denies motion to dismiss Ted Vick's DUI charge

SC State Rep. Ted Vick SC State Rep. Ted Vick
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A Richland County magistrate has decided the DUI case against Representative Ted Vick (D-Chesterfield) will move forward.

On Wednesday, his attorney, Todd Rutherford, filed a motion to dismiss the charge against Vick, claiming that the arresting officer did not read Vick his Miranda rights. Vick did not appear at the hearing in Richland County Magistrate court.

A magistrate on Friday denied that motion.

Vick was charged with DUI after an arrest in May. An officer for the SC Bureau of Protective Services, which provides security for the State House, arrested Vick in the parking garage at the State House complex.

This is Vick's second DUI charge. In May 2012, he was charged with speeding, DUI and unlawful carrying of a gun after he was stopped on Devine Street and refused a breathalyzer test.

Vick represents South Carolina District 53, which includes Chesterfield and Lancaster counties.

A trial date has not been set.
